Thank you. I've tried both suggestions.
But they both don't work :(

Here are the outputs:

>>> import math
>>> import scipy
>>> from scipy.sandbox import xplt

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#2>", line 1, in <module>
    from scipy.sandbox import xplt
ImportError: cannot import name xplt
>>> import scipy.sandbox.xplt

Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "<pyshell#3>", line 1, in <module>
    import scipy.sandbox.xplt
ImportError: No module named xplt
